with americans for patience and four more years to turn things around. did he make his case? peter doocy is live for us in washington. good morning, peter. what do you think? >>peter: in the speech, he said he is no longer just a candidate. he's the president. he said that times have changed since he first spoke to the democratic national convention back in 2004 when he was still running for senate in illinois. he also shaft night spent time rewinding even further summarizing how he thinks republicans in washington, dc, have done business, for three decades. >> all they had to offer is the same prescriptions they have had for the last 30 years. have a surplus? try a tax cut. deficit too high? try another one. feel a cold coming on? take two tax cuts, rollback regulations and call us in the morning. >> the president said his path,
the alternate to the president path, will not be easy. he said he was elected to tell the truth. the truth is it will take more than a few years to solve challenges that built up over decades but things are not so bad they cannot be fixed. >> our problems, america, can be solved. our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place. i'm asking you to choose that future. >> before the president spoke, we heard from vice president biden who said that republicans are betting against the american people. >> you never quit on america. you deserve a president would will never quit on you. one more thing: our republican opponents are dead wrong about: america is not in decline.
>> mitt romney responded to the president saying, tonight, president obama laid out a close in this election making the case for more of the same policies that haven't worked for the past four years. he offered more promises but he has not depth the -- kept the promises he made four years ago. the rhetoric is sharp but it could pivot to a new number due out in 3 1/2 hours, the unemployment rate for the month of august. >>heather: thank you, peter. time now for a look at who is talking and a lot of reaction to president obama's speech. >>heather: charles on his analysis of the president's speech. i was stunned. this is a man who gave one of the great speeches of our time in 2004. he gave one of the emptiest speeches i have ever heard on a
national stage. yes, it had cadence. yes, there were exceptions. but is not what is so striking. there is nothing in it. this is a man who believes government can and should do a lot. there is nothing that tells us how he will go from together to together for the goals and what government will do. what will he enact? at least romney had a five-point plan. what we heard from obama was a vision. he pulled numbers out of a hat, 100,000 new math and science teachers. he has 600,000 more people working in natural gas. he has two million more trainees. he doesn't say how we get from (a) to (b). it's a vision. i have a vision of mechanic with in disease and everyone has a private airplane but until i tell you how we get there, i have saiding in. what is so surprising is that all he had left, he clearly
cannot speak about his record on the economy, it is not good. he did not even speak about his achievements that the liberals like. obamacare, stimulus, et cetera -- they are unpopular. so he could talk about the fruit what he will do. there is nothing there. >>heather: juan williams talking about the president's speech acknowledging that the president did not lay out specifics on how he would achieve the goals. williams said, however, that is not what last night was about. >>juan: in terms of the content, the attitude that he brought and he quoted scripture, because of you, there is scripture filled with hope. that had a power to the help help. i think it is a very good question. the question in my mind, going forward, what chris wallace picked up on, people said, exactly how would you accomplish some of the goals. but it doesn't feel, look at audience and feeling the energy,
it doesn't feel that is what this night was about. it is about a president would has and does not look like he is feeling anxiety. >>heather: karl rove also talking this morning but not about what was in the president's speech, rather, what was actually not in the president's speech. calling the president out for ignoring three parts of his first term: stimulus and obamacare. >> we saw it in the film but the president never mentioned the word "stimulus," which was the big domestic accomplishment designed to jump start the economy. again, while it was mentioned in the film, he himself never said the words "obamacare" or afford able care. the first has been considered by most as a failure. a number of polls show two out of three americans believe that
his economic policies have either not helped the economy or have actually hurt our economic progress. we have 2.2 percent growth since the recession ended in june of 2009, the old anemic recovery since world war ii. we have high unemployment as a result. we have family incomes, the median family income has dropped over $4,000, the first time it has happened in a recession. he glossed over that by not mentioning stimulus. obamacare, of course, is highly unpopular, and he did not mention that. it is tell that someone said, a last people will be watching, we will put knit a film who will be seen by people watching cable tv but do not put it in the prime time seen by a broader number of people. >>heather: our brew on this question of the day, did president obama make his case if four more years in office? you can send us your comments by tweeting them or by shooting us
an e-mail. we will read them later in the show. >>heather: time, now, for the top stories making news at this hour. a few hours from now the labor department will reveal just how many jobs were created last in. will economists are predicting a rise of 140,000 jobs, fewer than in the month of july. the unemployment rate last month was 8.3 percent. that is 42 months with the unemployment rate over 8 percent. >> the dnc changing their platform after wide-spread criticism for not stating that jerusalem is the capital of israel. however, the state department is refusing to say it is the capital. the state department says that the status of jerusalem is an issue that should be resolved in final status negotiations between israelis and palestinians. mitt romney says that anything suggestion jerusalem is not the capital is shameful. >> are members of president obama's job council creating
outsourcing? are they outsourcing their jobs to china in import records from the commerce department show that companies that are affiliated with the president's job council imported more than 12,000 shipments from china since january of 2011. the shipments include bulk steel, neuron are you it and airline parts. by choice or by force, the u.s. military judge ruling that suspect in the ft. hood massacre must be clean shaven before his murder trial. the defense claims that his beard is because of his muslim faith but the judge said that there is no evidence that is, in fact, true. his lawyers say they will appeal, meaning another delay in the case. >> and a cardinal closing out the democratic national convention last night with a special blessing for life. that is a reminder of how the democrats and the catholic church disagree on the key issue of abortion and contraception. >> we praise you for the get of
life, grant us the courage to defend it, life without which no other rights are secure. we ask your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected. >>heather: he delivered a similar benediction last week at the republican national convention. the catholic church strongly opposes president obama's health care provision that would require institutions to provide employees with contraception. that is "five at five." >>heather: time for the first weather update with janice dean. charlotte, north carolina did notnd up with severe weather for the final night of the democratic national convention. >> little bit of rain. so maybe it is a good idea they had things indoors. there is that chance, and one strike of lightning is scary. as a weather opinion and a, month, i think they did the right thing.
we have the potential for severe weather because we have a significant cold front slicing through the midwest and the mid-south today and through the weekend moving across the east coast so temperatures will drop ten or even 20 degrees in 24 hours. this is the region where we could see the potential for severe weather from lower michigan down through the mid-south, certainly large hail and damaging wind and isolating tornadoes so the big cities need to keep an eye to the sky and you can see the cold front on the temperature map: 72 in chicago and 68 in minneapolis. right there, you can see we have the cooler and dry air moving in, and the taste of fall is coming this weekend for a lot of folks. >> that would be nice, a taste of fall after the hot summer. >>heather: thank you, janice. not exactly the reassuring news you want to hear if you are headed to the airport. t.s.a. officials let a man threw
would had no business being there. talk about needing a dose of efficiency, there is a new report out that reveals hour our health care system has a bad case of wasteful spending. >> look at leno from last night as we head to break. >> bill clinton said that obama inherit add deeply damaged economy. if he is re-elected he will inherit an even more deeply damaged economy.
22,000 visitors have may have been exposed. and texas has the need if speed approving 85 mile per hour speed limit on a 41 miles per hour long stretch of highway between austin and san antonio. that, by the way, makes it the highest speed limit in the country. officials hope that this will help ease congestion. >>heather: there has to be a country song on that. >> those are stories you can bank on: stocks soaring to levels not seen in years and years. peter explained why as lauren talks about that. >> blast off. the stock market shot up 2 percent to the highest close in more than four years. the catalyst was a confirmation bit president of the european central bank to do whatever it makes to preserve the euro. and hope at home, that our job market is mending, 201,000
private sector jobs were created. government is now weighing in with its tally in three hours. we will see if the optimism is warranted. >>heather: we need to create in the area of 300,000 just to get back to where we were before the recession. a new poll says 46 percent of people believe that their pay will remain the same next year and that is up significantly from the year before. >> we find that 46 percent think the pay will be the same and next year there are some people that are more optimistic, 40 percent of people polled thing they will make more money next year so we see a little bit of optimism. >> not much optimum. now, super bowl ads, they have told, almost sold out. >> no economic slow down for the super bowl. cbs, home to next year's february 3rd game, can bring in $225 million by selling 60, 30-second ads going for $3.8
million each, a record high. so far, 90 percent of the pricey ads are sold out. we will see more ads from kia, pepsi, and www.godaddy.com. >>heather: now 18 minutes after the hour and hours away from the latest jobs report. we will take a review of that data that is coming out. for those still searching for a job, cheryl is here with companies that are hiring today. also, a health alert to bring you this morning. the routine checks to prevent breast cancer may actually help spark the disease.
>>heather: good morning. hurricane isaac churning up oil in the gulf of mexico from the been oil spill. tarballs that wash ashore on two louisiana beaches have now been tested and those match the oil spill in 2011. b.p. says they are work dog clean that up. a major security breach at new york city's john f. kennedy airport. cops say a man set off alarms by setting an off limits area to smoke a cigarette. the alarm he should have set up was during the security screening. the t.s.a. let him through although the boarding pass was if a flight scheduled the next day. ladies? >> little bit a mistake there. >> the jobs report for august due out in just over he hours from new, the data expected to give president obama either a post conviction best or drop. here to give us a preview is the
fox business network. read the tea leaves. what do you think? >>guest: this is a crucial jobs report today. we have three hours until we find out about the jobs picket in this country. this is a report that will affect the election, it will affect what the federal reserve does or does not do next week when they meet. everything is based, really, on the numbers. here are the estimates: 125,000 jobs, 8.3 percent unemployment. that is the same. this is the estimate. we got a crazy report yesterday about private sector job growth and it was a huge shock to the upside where 200,000, all economists got it wrong. so, that was actually a good report. now, is that record a look at. ♪ we do not know. it will be fascinating. government jobs will go away, we are sure of that. the private-sector jobs, that is the question. >> the next monthly jobs report,
which will be for november, does not come out this will four days before the election. so this will be the one that determines what happens. >>guest: this will determine whether the fed will do anything to help the economy. they have been printed money, buying bonds. will they continue that? they have to go over the jobs data. they have monetary policy and an unemployment mandate. they have to address the jobs situation. >>heather: you are addressing the jobs situation. you have two companies that are hiring. >>guest: a couple of companies to share with everyone. the first is a cleaning systems company, a cleaning franchise company that is very much into reaching out to military veterans. they have 2,300 locations across the united states and looking to hire 100 military veterans, 200 jobs overall. you can make anything from minimum wage up to $50,000 a year and they have benefits. you work for the company themselves or you can actually open a franchise. they are encourage military

insulting our closest ally. >> republicans later accuse him of leaving out any specific plans but the president, also, spoke last night with inside information shortly before the speech it is believed he was briefed on the unemployment numbers coming out later this morning and that may have helped him calibrate the message on the economy. i will not pretend the path i'm offering is quick or easy. i never is. you didn't elect me to tell you what you wanted to hear. you elected me to tell you the truth. the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. >> the vice president, joe biden, backed up the imagine after accepting his nomination, promising that better days are ahead. >> the cause of change is not fully accomplished but we are on

and ready to go. look, everyone would walked in to the arena was passionate about president obama. everyone left passionate about him but the average american will it is there and say, wait, wait, wait a minute, you told us all of this stuff would happen and it didn't and now you telling me you need four more years before you can show progress? >>heather: now to charlotte. joining us from real clear politics is our guest. give us your analysis of how this is playing, how the speech played with independent voters? >>guest: the president earlier this week, gave himself a grade of incomplete can he has said before. his speech last night was kind of to say, you know, trust me, i'm a proven battle-tested candidate. trust me to get this done. i need a couple more years, four more years to do that. >>heather: does that message resonate that the president need
s to grab to get re-elected? >>guest: it is not clear. he did throw partisan jabs at mitt romney. but independents are thinking about jobs. we will see those numbers come out later today, later this morning. it is not yet clear if independents are saying we can wait four more years or however long it takes to get the economy going. >>heather: all the polling shows that jobs and the economy are the number one issues for voters. both candidates lacks specificity giving information about what they would do to bring in more jobs. how do you think this will play with the american public in did either party win on this? >>guest: well, right, obama tried to offer some specifics but he did not offer any policies we had not heard before, he talked about the teachers and infrastructure
jobs. does that do it for folks? >>guest: these are things we have heard before. the main message was a vision of what the next four years would look like and by giving us those kind numbers, it gives us some kind of barometer of sorts, but, both campaigns lacks specifics, i would say. we will see, again, the jobs numbers come out and we can use that as a wraps of how things are really going and how voters might feel about the plans and whether they do, in fact, trust the president to carry through the next term. >>heather: real clear politics has the national average putting president obama and mitt romney in a dead heat. give us your post convection prediction. who comes out of this ahead? >>guest: well, i think the obama campaign went second so they have that kind of energy coming out, but, again, if the jobs numbers today are the same
as we have seen before, i think that will give republicans another set to go after. the obama campaign will say that no matter what, we have created jobs and there is some kind of growth there but it depends on the report. >>heather: thank you so much. there you go it is all about jobs. >>heather: and the economy. the report coming out at 8:30. the top five stories making news at this home including the democratic national convention introduced him as a former worker and a company employed by bain capital telling a story about a steel company. i had to stand in front of hundreds of steelworkers in their 50's and 60's, retirees and widows in their 70's and 80's and tell them, romney and bain had broken their promises.
